Deafblind man accesses specialist assessment and help with charging law

If someone goes completely blind and then later deaf (it happens) s/he can become completely dependent on technology, human help and courage to get through daily living, although remaining fully mentally capacitated. CASCAIDr has helped a man in that situation challenge his council for not reviewing his needs since the Care Act (2015); not providing an assessor with competence in dual sensory impairment, not increasing his package since his deafness set in, and not allowing for tech to count as DRE.
